Click to viewEarlier this week, I got a chance to sit down with Dave Filoni, director of the Clone Wars movie coming out next Friday, and ask him some burning questions about the new animated flick and TV series. Most importantly, I asked how the clones in the series are going to overcome their programming and become individuals.
